Bike miles …

Nearly 300 this week, so spring must be around the corner. Mileage was more or less evenly spread between the BMW GS and the Triumph Scrambler, the former clocking up 131 in one trip to get serviced at Carlisle and then home via Hawick – by no means the quickest route, but the diversion into the Scottish Borders includes the near empty sweeping bends of the A7.

In among the images of my own bikes there is the enormous BMW R18 and a new BMW GS, made ugly by too many splashes of yellow – both taken at the BMW showroom while waiting for my bike to be serviced and shod with some new Metzelers. Well, you have to fill the time somehow …

The GS with Rubers Law in the distance

BMW R1250 GS – the 2022 version of my bike spoiled buy the yellow touches (looks better in mono;-))

The BMW R18 – magnificent but not my style of bike

Under threatening skies to Bellingham, but stayed dry.

    I love the open road, and the road from Sundaysight looks good

      Me too – utterly addictive, Sue. I have recently booked the ferries to take me to Orkney and Shetland on two wheels, in early June.

        Oooh, I’m envious! Will you see the Ring of Brodgar, whilst you’re there, Robin?

        Definitely, although I have been to Orkney twice before and done all the major sights. I have never been to Shetland before, so that will be all new.

        Look forward to seeing the images!
